Don't Panic

I have been musing on the nature of panic buying triggered by politicians and people of authority telling Joe Public not to panic. Consequently, Joe panic bought Jerry cans, petrol and now stamps. So I would just like to assure everyone down the club not to panic at a lack of beer, burgers, runs and wickets. DON'T PANIC as the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy would also recommend. The drought may also cause more panic, and all those Jerry cans can now be filled with water. I have already noticed a lack of watercress and water melons in Waitrose. Come to think on it I have not spotted any Water buffalo in the last few days; strange.

Right on cue the opening weekend of the season saw below average temperatures, a stiff wind blowing up the whites and defeat on Saturday (Hurley and the mighty Toffees). I am afraid I was not man enough to brave the artic wind and icey blow from the flame haired one or gloating from plastic reds. Not having been there and a glitch in the website meant I can't even comment on what went down apart from Val's Roasties. I even missed the spicey musings from Steve Silkcut though Orbes was introduced to them in the slips.

ClubForce Day was another success with the usual suspects supporting and a good turnout from the colts and their parents. Matt Merlot served up burgers and bangers, Val's mound was trimmed, the boundary strimmed, our new sight screen erected and a mad game of football amongst the colts ensued. I opted for two burgers and negotiated a deal on a burnt sausage, but frankly had to give it away to one with a more robust stomach. The weather looks grim tomorrow for my first foray down the club for a cup of tea and slice of Battenburg.
